Artist's Statement:

Twenty years ago I began to combine my experience in costume with my fascination for embroidery by designing and making elaborately embellished  costumes. Since then, my work has evolved through many explorations of technique in textile art.

I incorporate my original textile art pieces into the hats and bags I craft from high end materials. This creates works that can be viewed as art and also used practically, as an adornment. It is terrifying to make that first cut into one of my richly layered tapestries of fabric, paint, dyes and thread in order to transform it into a piece of wearable art. However, the results are worth it when I see the finished piece on the wearer. This final combination of art and body is always my favourite.
